The U.S. Coast Guard- Protecting Our Shores from the Beginning

The flag of the United States Coast Guard has a rich history, reflecting the growth and the changing roles of the Coast Guard throughout the years. Here is a brief history of the flag:

1. Early Years: The origins of the Coast Guard can be traced back to 1790 when the Revenue Cutter Service was established as the country's oldest continuous seagoing service. During this period, the Revenue Cutter Service did not have an official flag. Ships would instead fly the United States ensign, which featured 13 alternating red and white stripes with a blue canton displaying the Union Jack.

2. 1799-1899: In 1799, the Revenue Cutter Service officially adopted its own flag known as the Revenue Ensign. This flag featured 16 vertical red and white stripes with a blue canton displaying 16 stars. This design aimed to represent the number of states in the Union at that time.

3. 1915-1919: With the merger of the Revenue Cutter Service and the Life-Saving Service in 1915, the Coast Guard as we know it today was formed. A new flag was designed to represent the unified service. It featured a blue field with the Coast Guard emblem in white. The emblem consisted of a life preserver, anchor, and crossed oars.

4. 1919-Present: In 1919, the Coast Guard recognized the need for a flag that could be easily recognized and distinguished from the flags of other maritime services. The current flag design was adopted, featuring a dark blue field with the Coast Guard emblem in the center. The emblem remained unchanged but was surrounded by a white circle. This flag is still used by the Coast Guard today.

5. The 1960's: The Coast Guard adapted its flag during the 1960s to incorporate the 50 stars representing the 50 states of the United States. The stars were arranged in a semicircle around the emblem within the white circle. This modification reflects the changing nature of the Coast Guard's role as a federal agency.

Overall, the flag of the United States Coast Guard has evolved alongside the development and expansion of the service. It represents the unity, history, and commitment of Coast Guard members in protecting U.S. coastal waters and serving the nation.
